Thanks for visiting my website! I’m Mary Ellen Phipps, MPH, RDN, LD, a Houston-based registered dietitian and the founder of Milk & Honey Nutrition. As a person living with Type 1 Diabetes, I know firsthand the impact food has on how we think, feel, act and move. I strive to make food easy and fun again for people living with or caring for someone with chronic conditions. I use both my professional expertise and personal experience to reduce stress and fear around food, and help people find joy in the kitchen again.

I am a contributing writer, recipe developer and content expert for several leading health and wellness organizations and prominent publications. Check out some of my past work (below) to see how we can work together to promote your brand.  I’d love to start a conversation and learn more about your brand!

Product promotion

As a registered dietitian, I recommend the best-of-the-best in products, foods, and kitchen tools to my audience. Given my personal and professional background, I highlight how products can fit into a ow glycemic, blood sugar friendly eating pattern. I am uniquely equipped to educate both my own and your audience. Not only do I have the professional skills as a dietitian with expertise in diabetes and metabolic conditions, but I also live everyday with type 1 diabetes (since I was 5 years old). I can communicate product information, develop new recipes, or highlight positive features about your product.
